Joran Dax[edit]

Was there ever a discussion in this story as to why Jadzia would want Joran Dax, the dangerous psychopath to inhabit Benjamin Sisko, the physically strongest person in the cast at the time - who also happens to command the station? This struck me as a very reckless choice, and could be seen as a notable plot hole.Algr 05:39, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

Most likely because of Captain Sisko's strong personallity so he could forceably take over. Sisko and Dax probably talked about this before they called everyone and decided that Sisko would take the risk in case Joran made him do anything. They did take the precaution of having Joran/Sisko in a holding cell. ----Willie 09:05, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

I just watched this episode and an even more gaping plothole struck me. why doesn't jadzia already have the memories about the things the previous hosts tell her? if curzon was in love with her, why doesn't she know it already? and to a lesser extent with the female host (forget the name) and her story about why she holds her hands behind her back. if someone thinks it's worth including, maybe under trivia, go ahead, not really experienced with editting and i'd rather not mess the page up. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.6.55.83 (talkcontribs) 19 May 2007

I agree that it seems strange (about the memories), but it could be that there's an explanation we haven't thought about. I don't know every detail about the Star Trek Universe. Sometimes there can be an explanation that some people would consider reasonable, but others would consider far-fetched. So, I've learned from different discussions about movies etc. that what is a plot hole might sometimes be subjective. If there is a source criticizing the episode for having plot holes I wouldn't object to mentioning it under "Reception".
Regarding Joran Dax, I don't really think it's a plot hole. In addition to Willie's comments it can also be said that Benjamin is a close friend of Jadzia, and she would likely choose a close friend for that particular host. (For a big favor you'd ask a good friend.) Jiiimbooh (talk) 21:12, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
